I've been thinking about this as I played Fallout, and I came to the conclusion that the wastelanders of DC have to be morons, since downtown DC is chock-full of structurally-sound buildings that can easily be used as housing, and some even got fairly decent defensive spots to make a safe haven.
I was thinking of opening up the GECK, cleaning up certain downtown areas, removing all the spawns and putting actual wastelanders, and making the place seem a bit more alive.
One such place is in L'Enfant Plaza, where there's actual houses, even a Diner mostly intact. Would be nice to have actual towns in Downtown DC, that isn't Rivet City.
What do you guys think?
